Slackware, Slax My first experience with Slackware Linux came with version 9.1, after 4 years of using various versions of Red Hat and SUSE Linux. I disliked the general direction these distributions were moving in and didn't see their increasing focus on the "big end of town" as auguring well for either myself or clients of my small one-person IT consultancy business. I quickly became a Slackware convert and have since used it exclusively for all my server deployments. Check in for more and 15 screenshots from Slackware 10.

Mysql package on slackware
by BrownJenkin on Thu 15th Jul 2004 09:07 UTC

I had lot o problemas with the mysql package on slack 10. I've chosen it during the installation process, and i've decided to start it during boot time in the post-installation config. During the boot time it always returned the message 'Mysql ended' and standing at the log he couldn't find a 'frm' file.

Anyway, slackware 10 is quite similar to 9.1. The speed is amazing, stability is quite good. It's a great distro, and with the /testing kernel 2.6.7 works really fine.
